The Rrooklyn Advertiser say--, "some years
since, a family residint: in one of the Southern
states possessed a Newfoundland dog, which
conceived a htrong friendship for the little
daughter of its owner. Thischih! he used to
escort regularly to school, carrying her si'el el
in his month, nn.l was fjennnlly nt the door
when the hours of her penance were over, to
trot along by her side homeward.
Onediy, the girl, having strayed nway willi
out the knowl.'diie of her pi rents-, saiM.'erod n-
long to the water, nnd was amusing herself by
walking upon the striiiL' pieces of a pier. The
dog, as usual, was her only rttendaut, nnd
seemed to watch her pranks wiih much ntt-n-t
on and considerable uneasiness. Frequently
warned by various persons upon thewhar1", to
keep further from the rdief she nevertheless,
with juvenile waywardness, continued her dan-
rjernus pnstime, until finally miss-mir her foot
ing, (die fell into the water. Instantly the
neii.'h!iothood was in nn uproar : some ran to
loosen a boat, others flung hoards ititn'hestrenm
and a sailor present stripped oil' his jacket and
shoes for a plunge alter the lil'le castaway.
Rut Towser fully comprehended the matter

she was in peril, w in by the side of his youn
mistress, had MT.eil Iot by her floating dress.
nml was padiliii.:,' bad; with his pr eious bur

now only to leap into a slrp's ynwl lu.id by, and
pull both of the dripping ert a'ures into it, nnd
deposite them upon the dock in salVty,
'Powser, 'if course, bec.ime more than ever a
favor, to wilh th(! family, and held a very envi
able rank above others of his species. As his
mistress increased in ttrength mid stature she
was never allowed to forget the debt of grati
tude c! no her canine companiot., although she
had i.iitorown the neces.-i y of railing upon
linn tor further services, so that he slept and
prew fat upon his laurels, like soineold soldier,
whose jouthful privations and evulenci s of va
lor have procured him n pension for t ie remain
der of his pilgrimage.
Some five years after this occurrence, the fa
mily had resolved upon chr.niiitiL' their place of
residence lor the city of St. Aiii'iis'iue.
morning of their ih partnn; bad arrived; the
schooner which was io convey them to their
new homo w is castiti ; oil from the pier, ll.e
very one which had been the scene of I'ow.-er's
exploit, but he was now here In be found. Tl.ey
hi.-tb d nnd called, but no dog npp.-ared ; the
cup'.iin became restive, swore hi-would w.i.t no
longer, gave the order, nnd l!:. craft :v. opt n
long the waters with a sparkling bre. .". and
was soon u qu irter ofn mile from tho shore.
The girl and her father were i-iaudmr?; nl the
stern of the vessel, lookim.? back upon the city
which they hid pro'.ub'y lelt tbrrver, when sud

The following in nn extract from the speech
of the Rev. Mr. Longsdrcntli, cl'tieoryin, before
the Southern Methodist Convention, upon the
iUti..n of separation :
'No ; we must part, nnd the snonfT tho bet
ter. l.-l ii', with our new oignni.ition, try to
get hark to primitive .Mi thodi.-ti.-m. I spenk
not of its externals, s une of w hich never legiti
mately In Ion rd to it, but of its inward graces.
I speak of its forme zeal, which glowed with
equal fervor amidst the miasm ot the lowland
swamps, ami the healthful breezes of the moun
tain which bdlhe Methodist preacher to seek
the !o,t sheep of the fold of Christ w bitherso- j
i vi r tin y w andered. 1 spruit of that Medio-ili-m
that preached not only on tinted days, tuid
nt stated times; but which preached at all times
und in all placer- in ihe chapel, tin hu the
kitchen, the grove, tho wilderness to fathers,
mothers, husliaud-', wives, parents, children,
masters, servants which never entered a house
without a word for tin; Lord, and never left it
without praying a blessing upon it which plan
ted Ihe s'linioird of the cross on the spot which
we occupy ere the ell: and the buffalo had left
it which pushed mi its labor?, at times, until
exhausted nature rnr.k under them.
When 1 thus speak of Methodism, let me
li d he understood as c'niuiing for our sect all
ihe religion that is in the world. Far from it
there is us pure religion in the other churches
as in ours. It I possess one christian virtue, it is
love tor nil who love iiiul serve the Linl Jesns
Cl.r st; hut I coti'l'ss I feci a kindling emotion,
allied to Ihe moral sublime, when I contemplate
Methodism personified in such men as otjr Nol
ly, whose tuner il obsequies were performed by
himself, whose dirge was sounded by the win
ter wu. ds, nnd whose monument was the sturdy
oak of the forest found by the woodsman fro
zen on his knees, and buried in the attitude of
prayer. Of Myself I will not glory, of my
church I will not glory, but of such men ns these '
I in flit become a fool in glorying, and nl! men !
would pardon me, it" tint join me. Yes, were I
to inscribe on the root of w hich was his last pil- j
low, 77c ( 'hrirttun's lust innnnmrnt. every
Christian of 1 very branch would cheerfully in
scribe under it Amen nnd ninrn. To this kind

acteristic of the Southern church, and then, if
they will, Ut the Northern church all ihe refct."

One of the two things must ho done inllii
country. Parents must spend money to edu
cate thrirchildreti, or they mti.-t pay tnx to
build penitentiaries nnd to punish crime. There
is a great mistake about what is called educi
cntion. Some suppose a learned man is en cd
iicn.ti d man. No such thing. That man is
educated who knows himself, and who takes
accurate common tcn-e views of men nml
things around him. Some very learned men
arc the greatest fools in the world ; the reason
is, that they are not educated men. Lenrnicr
is only the means, not the end ; its value con
sists in giving the means of acquiring, in t' 0
discipline, which, when properly managed, it
gives the mind. Sonic of the greatest men in
the world were not overstocked with learning.
